Enjoy this Flavorful Peruvian Inspired Cilantro Beef Stew recipe. Fresh ingredients, healthy, and so comforting.
As many of you already know, I am from Peru. I grew up with lots of wonderful flavors. Like this Flavorful Peruvian Inspired Cilantro Beef Stew. It is called “Seco” which means “Dry”. I really can’t understand why because it is completely the opposite. It is so juicy and saucy. If anyone knows, please tell me!
Aromatic…. fragrant…. the type of flavor you never forget.
This is one of the dishes I never forgot from my childhood. Now that I live in the US, I want my kids to try also the tasty flavors I grew up with. And this recipe was a success. My whole family loved it.
The difference between the traditional cilantro stew and my recipe: more veggies, bone broth, and no chili. Trust me, if you like cilantro you are going to LOVE this Flavorful Peruvian Inspired Cilantro Beef Stew recipe.
I wanted to make this dish but incorporate my favorite healthy ingredients. I am recently obsessed with bone broth and how it really brings out more flavor to my stews. Mixed with cilantro, it created such a wonderful broth and became the base for my Flavorful Peruvian Inspired Cilantro Beef Stew.
This is the perfect comfort food for my family. You can serve it with brown rice, quinoa, or just your favorite side dish. If you want to thicken the sauce a little bit, just add a little organic cornstarch or tapioca pearls. I hope you enjoy this delicious Peruvian dish.
